Reports from our training and events, both UWP-run and external; updates on new training we’re developing, and why.

This month in our support clinic we’ve been considering digital strategy: firstly, developing one; then promoting adherence to it, once in place.

This months’ Web Publishing Community saw our latest update on the Drupal project (EdWeb), an update on Google Analytics events tracking, and a presentation from Andy Todd about his experiences of creating training videos for the IS Skills team.
